Update: Dead! As I mentioned, when a deal like this sounds too good to be true, it will get pulled way earlier than the stated end date. Congrats to those who took advantage!
Expedia is running a promotion in which you can instantly save $100-$200 on most hotels with NO minimum dollar amount for the hotel. However you do have to stay at least 3-5 nights at the hotel for the discount code to be applied. That means if you were able to find a cheap hotel (say $100/night), on a 3 night stay, it is like buying two nights and getting one free! This will also work best for hotels in SE Asia, Las Vegas and other parts of the world where hotels are generally cheap to begin with. You must book by March 15th and travel must be by August 31st but I sincerely doubt this code will last that long!
Here are the offers with coupon code:
Save $100 on any stay of 3+ nights using coupon code: DISCVR105
Save $150 on any stay of 4+ nights using coupon code: DISCVR151
Save $200 on any stay of 5+ nights using coupon code: DISCVR201
The great thing about this promotion is most hotel chains are included (except Accor hotels) which is generally not the case with these type of promotions. As a reminder, you won’t earn hotel points and may not have elite benefits recognized if you book a chain hotel this way but the savings should outweigh the hotel points earned, especially if you are an infrequent traveler or not chasing elite status.
Here are the full terms and conditions.

Seems to have expired already
It worked this morning at 8:30 ET when I posted it. Not surprised if it is actually dead.
I just received this email. I guess it’s because I paid with PayPal. But I did not see the Discovery terms anywhere on the website
